Thursday Birdblogging



I was hoping I could pick up a picture from local news about a night hawk. It has nested in a local church parking lot, and is now protected by orange cones and little signs saying Bird Nesting.

It's wonderful when people care for their fellow creatures.

Unfortunately the local news' technology didn't carry the wonderful pictures on their website.

Thank you all, for caring.

Thanks for the night hawk photo, turtletrack.

Nighthawks are interesting birds, and easy to identitfy as they wheel about catching insects on the wing at dusk due to their long wings with a distinctive white bar on the underside.

Ruth,

I don't know if you saw this when I posted it at Eschaton, so here goes. This gal was visiting our bird feeder on a second-floor deck...

We've had lots of baby birds come out of the "wood work" over the past two weeks. Baby turkeys, song sparrows, cardinals, and even red shouldered hawks have brought their kids to our property.
Thank you for the night hawk photo, we usually see them on their migration south or north as they love to dine on the insects above our pond.
